didn't say the election came out as it did because obama's team outplayed and outfoxed his. he should have because that's the truth. he said obama won the second term through essentially bribery. i have three rules for both parties as they converge to do their jobs. respect the vote are. respect each other's offices and search hard for common ground. that's what we should be doing and guiding our country's conversation. not trashing the people who voted against you but respecting the fact that they did for your own good. washington bureau chief from mother jones and our political analyst. let's take a look at some of this stuff from john mccain. four years since john mccain lost his presidential bid, ten days since mitt romney lost but they are holding a grudge against the president and their bitter comments this week. listen to romney's conference calm about obama's gifts and mccain's gifts about obama ally susan rice. >> what the president, the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extra financial gift from the government and then wor

. president obama says they're centering around increasing tax on the wealthy which will go a good way in increasing the revenue that he wants to raise in the next decade in an attempt to reduce the federal deficit. he wants to reinstate the bush tax cut which goes to the top 2% of earners. that would jump from 36% to 39%. he likes to say that's where it was during the clinton years. the second one would go from 36% to 39%. he's been focusing on this specific number since his reelection which suggests he may compromise on the actual rates in order to get a deal. there are other taxes as well he's talking about. taxes on investment gain would also go up. the capital gains tax would go from 15% to 20% and dividend taxes would go from 50% to the income tax rate. as i showed you, 39.6%. president obama argues this will hurt people with savings and dividend stocks, but the overall investment gains are enjoyed by the wealthy. this, again, would target that rich group that president obama is talking about. but that's not all. the president also wants to raise an additional $500 million by lim

government to get a deal. is there a productive way in which president obama can use his executive power to negotiate and try to strike a grand bargain deal? guest: there is an opportunity in these matters. unlike the legislative branch that speaks of many voices, the executive has the opportunity to have that bully pulpit and be the vision and speak with one voice and command a disproportionate amount of the attention around the messaging. if that person has the courage to go first and go big, it could have a big impact on the debate. president obama has a tremendous opportunity here coming off of reelection. he could set the tone and the direction and show willingness to compromise to get a deal done. >> what will this look like for the president? guest: everyone sees the contours of the branded deal. -- grand deal. they will have to just entitlement programs not just for recipients but for coming generations and that could include adjusting the retirement age overtime. from a republican standpoint, you will have to split a divided government so there will be no additional revenues. th

run by pro-american dictator and run by leaders of the president brotherhood. should president obama put pressure on the egyptian government. threatening to cut off aid to get them to stop firing rockets? >> they should exert any pressure they can to make sure it doesn't escalate. to a full blown war between the palestinians and the israelis. you know, whatever that takes. now the problem the israelis have is that the rockets are being fired on them from places that they can't reach by flying over in the air. putting them in cool yards where they are surrounded by school children. firing from marketplaces. that are crowded with people. israel has a right to protect itself. sending ground troops in, is the only way they can clean out the nests of the rockets fired at them. you can't blame them for doing it. >> chris: all right. turn to benghazi. both of you held closed door hearings this week with top administration officials. and david petraeus, reportedly said in the closed door hearings that while he always believed that terrorists were behind the attack, that the administration wa

-american dictator but leaders of the muslim brotherhood. should president obama put more pressure on the egyptian government, even threaten to cut off aid, to get hamas to stop firing those rockets? >> he needs to exert every kind of pressure he can, chris to try to make sure it doesn't escalate into a full-blown war between the palestinians and the israelis and, whatever that takes. but, you know, the problem the israelis have is that these rockets are being fired on them, from places that they can't reach by flying over in the air and they are putting them in school yards where they are surrounded by schoolchildren and firing them from marketplaces crowded with people. and, israel has a right to protect itself. and, if sending ground troops in is the only way they can clean out these nests of rockets being fired at them, you know, you can't blame them for doing it. >> chris: all right, let's turn to benghazi. both of you held closed-door hearings this week with top administration officials and david petraeus reportedly dead, in these closed door hearings while he always believed terrorists were
. >> wolf blitzer -- president obama is monitoring the conflict in the middle east as he travels through asia. today in thailand, he said the u.s. will work with all parties to end the violence. later today, mr. obama makes history when he becomes the first u.s. president ever to visit myanmar. the state department is update how it deserves security for diplomatic efforts around the globe. secretary hillary clinton will monitor where forces are deployed so they can travel to help out emergencies in state department facilities if needed. the change comes in the midst of congressional hearings that are critical of how the obama administration handled the attack on gaza. democratic congressman ron barbour bested -- >> rescue crews have found a man's body in the gulf of mexico. they believe he is one of the two crewmembers missing after an explosion on an oil blat form. the body has not been identified yet. >>> the crisis in the middle east has intensified and we'll meet someone who's inside the inner circle in the white house, we'll ask what's going on behind closed doors right now. the whe
an important role. you know the obama vision was one where they thought better suited the country. and there is no question on social issues. whether it is women's health care, immigration, gay rights. there are a set of issues particularly for younger voters so, people vote very, very carefully. the economy was a dominant issue. i think that is why ultimately some people chose the president to continue the journey we are on. now quickly in terms of democracy, you know we don't know this for sure, but we could be seeing very different elections. that of that in 2010, 14, maybe 18 will be quite a bit different. the comments i made two years ago were predicated on what we thought would happen in a presidential year. the latino turnout was surging. president winning more of the latino votes but even winning the cuban votes. you saw young votes exceeding the turnout from four years ago surprising most analysts. you saw african american turnout. you saw the excitement of the first african american president was four years ago. you saw a real determination there to support the president
policy won the electio for mr. obama. that's just the most amazing nonsense i've ever heardn my life. but, also, the whole point of the fiscal cliff is it to reduce the deficit. now, you're going to say, we're going to add a deficit? in that case, let's leave taxes low, let's keep spending high, i mean, the whole idea is we've got to stop this out of control deficit, this out of control debt. what senator schumer is proposing is exactly the wrong idea. >> and now entitlements leave them alone and dagen, go on and on and on. >> the argument we need to stimulate growth. you'll hurt growth if you raise taxes and it gets back to what we've seen all along, we will raise your taxes 'cause we, the government, and the lawmakers, can spend your money better than you can spend it yourself, because they know better. it doesn't make any sense. it's upside down, backwards, like spinning around and around logic and that's the way they think. >> i don't see much progress here then. and i see, chaie gasperino, when all is said and done, that if the markets don't sell off on the lack after deal they sell
